Keeping up the pace of charging infrastructure

With EV sales growing at a faster rate than traditional ICE vehicles, the roll out of the charging infrastructure to support adoption is struggling to keep pace. There is an unprecedented opportunity for businesses with the right offering to capture a significant share of EV charging market. But this can only be achieved by providing […]

Technology neutral climate policies

If the ultimate goal is to decarbonize transportation, there are reasons to be concerned about current electric vehicle (EV) policy. Sixty percent of US and worldwide electricity is generated from fossil fuels, causing the carbon footprint of EVs to vary dramatically based on where (and when) they are adopted. Moreover, the transition to a 100% […]

Future Production Technologies

Jonathan Wood, VP for Neste’s Renewable Aviation business, summarises the case for change to Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), what is SAF, how it reduces net emissions, where it is available, the outlook in terms of future production technologies, the criticality of policy support to encourage demand and supply, as well as the importance of corporate […]

Charting a path to net zero: the importance of carbon footprints to aid decision making

Companies that fail to respond to the impacts of the transition to a lower-carbon economy face financial and reputational risks. Greenhouse gas emissions from airline and airport operations and across the value chain create risk due to ever tighter carbon constraints from increasingly stringent policies, changing consumer behaviour, and shareholder expectations. A robust carbon footprint […]

How new digital technology combined with the widespread support of all aviation workers will have a significant impact to make aviation greener

Aviation represents 3 per cent of global emissions, and that figure could double by 2030. It faces pressures from all sides, environmental, social, and economic, and requires them to cooperate and accelerate their transition to sustainable development. Without waiting for the hydrogen or electrical aircraft, there are opportunities to reduce fuel burn and consequently CO2 […]

Meeting the challenges of speed

The wind industry has proved that it can scale up – in the UK and globally – to meet demand and become the primary source of energy generation. How can it do it at the required speed to meet net decarbonisation targets, is another question. We will explore what companies and government are doing in […]

Current status of the bioenergy sector and its future role in a climate neutral energy system

Bioenergy is currently the world’s largest renewable energy source, accounting for 10 per cent of the primary energy supply. It is a versatile energy source utilising a variety of feedstock and production pathways to provide energy for multiple end uses including heating, cooking, transport fuel and electricity. Globally, the sector employed more than 3 million […]

Electrifying Europe with wind energy

Today wind energy is 16 per cent of Europe’s electricity. According to the European Commission’s Green Deal vision of climate neutrality by 2050, wind energy will become the building block of Europe’s future energy system. Over the next 30 years this energy system is going to undergo fundamental changes. Renewables-based electrification of sectors and applications […]

Oceans powering the energy transition

The oceans are the world’s largest untapped source of renewable energy. Tides and waves have the potential to provide 10 per cent of Europe’s current electricity consumption by 2050, creating 400,000 jobs. Predictable and flexible ocean energy will be needed to complement variable wind and solar energy. Led by European companies, ocean energy is all […]
